Travel Wardrobe

For my holiday, I wanted a quick and easy knit skirt which I could stuff in my bag, pull over a swimsuit or leggings.   Patty Young posted a super easy yoga skirt tutorial on the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog.    I didn't have any easy access to any of Patty's new knit line so I went to my local fabric store to see what was on sale.   The fabric I chose is kind of unusual. I chose the fabric because it was on sale and had some navy.   When I travel I tend to pack in navy, white, and khaki.  The fabric was marked down from $19 to $4 so it was a good deal.   After experimenting with various hemming techniques, I decided that a rolled hem would be best and actually went to the Indian Bazaar to have it done.    The seamstress showed me how to use the rolled hem presser foot so I can't wait to try out the technique on my own. Here a couple of photos from my hotel room.

The navy flats are by Bloch .  These flats are perfect for holidays.  They fold up so they can also be stuffed in a bag along with your yoga skirt.  I find that Bloch's flats fit more snugly and provide more "toe coverage" than the Gap's city flat version.
